Trek 750 Frame. How much is it worth?

I want to sell this frame, I read a couple pages on the bike and seems like if it had wheels and a seat I could sell it for around $100? Anyone got any suggestions for a starting price? Thanks! -Aaron
*UPDATE* - Sold for $30

I'd think that your assessment would be about right. Here in NYC, that'd sell easily for $100-$150. SB is a college town, I bet you could get that much for it there.

I'd be a bit leery of it being shipped USPS Parcel-Post. This method sounds like Gorilla-Bait to me.

$25 to $50 max. Older rigid mountain bikes have very little value. I paid $20 for my wife's Trek 950 frame, and it included everything except wheels, chain, and a rear derailleur.

Complete, $100 to $125 in ready to ride clean condition.
